Drew and Leslie met at the Clemson vs. Citadel football game in November 2013. Drew's high school friend, Keaton, was dating Leslie's older sister, Allison, at the time - who are now married. It was a simple introduction that sparked a (soon to be) lifetime of happiness together. Drew & Leslie hit it off the day they met with their love for Clemson football, Esso Club & live music! Leslie was instantly drawn in by Drew's good looks, sense of humor, and his natural respect for her. Drew & Leslie have made so many memories together since the day they met. From seeing Lion King on Broadway, drinking wine through the vineyards of Tuscany in Italy, and seeing Clemson win the National Championship game in January of 2017 - they've only begun their journey together. Drew & Leslie are so excited to begin their lives together to make even more memories with each other.
Charleston was a special place for Drew & Leslie to get married for many reasons. Drew was born and raised in Charleston and Leslie, originally from Myrtle Beach, spent a lot of her time in Charleston while her dad fought a long battle of heart disease. After Leslie's dad passed away in April 2013, she hadn't returned to Charleston for some time. Leslie met Drew later that year and he brought her back to Charleston, only to develop good memories! Charleston has had a positive impact on Drew & Leslie's relationship since they've met, from the boat rides in the harbor, romantic dinners at Macintosh, and finally, becoming newlyweds at The Gadsden House! Although work has kept them from living in Charleston, they cannot wait to start their lives together and travel back to Charleston to reminisce on those good times they've shared here!
